    I’m disappointed in myself for not bringing a reusable container to dinner last night. Still, it’s in my brain now for future improvement!

  • Reflection Question
    Food Start Composting
    Do an inventory of how much food waste you would save from going to the landfill if you start composting all of the time. What are the added benefits of having compost that is readily accessible?

    Debbi Stone 7/25/2019 3:46 AM
    I need to start my compost bin ASAP!!!
  • Reflection Question
    Food Shop the Bulk Bins
    How has buying bulk impacted the quality of the food you receive? Why do you think Western society relies more on prepackaged foods rather than buying in bulk?

    Debbi Stone 7/24/2019 4:04 PM
    I always remember bags...now on to containers!
